will revisit with prime minister of israel benjamin netanyahu a couple days from now as they try to begin that new conversation in earnest. just a short time ago on this his second day here in israel, the president did a little of cultural stops, going to israel museum where he saw what are referred to as the dead sea scrolls. these are ancient hebrew text that sort of highlight the connection between the jewish people and this land here. the state of israel. but during the conversation with reporters yesterday, the president once again showed that he has israel's back. that's the exact language that he used on the topic of iran. he said that he will do whatever is necessary to prevent iran from getting its hands on nuclear weapons. he referred to them as the world's worst weapons. >> all right, peter alexander, thank you. >>> all day long, stay with nbc for complete coverage of president obama's historic trip to the middle east. >>> a new report this morning is sounding the alarm on the intelligence community. this morning's "washington post" claims u.s. spy agencies are dropping the bal

and bet washington nationals could come to -- bet -- prime minister benjamin netanyahu said president barack obama is taking the lead on how u.s. will respond to iran's threats and that's because the u.s. is israel's strongest ally and iran could have a nuclear weapon to use in the next few months and they believe it could not happen for another year which could form more peace talks. he wants to talk about peace. >> to speak directly to the people of israel and to neighbors... >> reporter: the president is meeting with israel and the two will hold a news conference. live in washington kyla campbell ktvu channel 2 morning news. >>> the 15-year-old girl from pakistan who was shot in the head by the taliban because she fought for the rights of women now has a new school to go to. she is attending school in birmingham england. last october she was shot by a taliban who shot her in the head who claims she was promoting western thinking. she said she wants all girls to have the basic opportunities to go to school. >>> a group of nine-year-olds in berkele

conference was benjamin netanyahu moving much closer to the president's position on this. as we know, there's been tension on this. netanyahu sees this in a more immediate way. there was that lecture in the oval office. i think what we saw today is a prime minister who recognizes that the president has been reelected and it's in his interest to try to ease some of those tensions. but getting back to syria, when i was in israel last week, the most immediate threat that i gathered was syria and the possibility that some of those, some of these, some of that could spill over and affect israel. >> the fog of war, having covered 12 wars, is always difficult in those initial stages. and there are lots of accusations by both sides. they're sending chemical weapons testing kits to the rebels. it is clear that if either side used chemical weapons, it will be a game changer, whether it's in terms of what the outside world is prepared to do against the regime of president bashar al-assad. but we're not there yet. and it's something that we all have to sit back. the challenge is syria over the next yea
a moment. first, praise for and thanks to president obama from the prime minister of israel, benjamin netanyahu, for continued support. president said there's time for diplomacy in talks with iran over nuclear weapons. the president says he'll do anything necessary to keep iran from getting the bomb then prime minister netanyahu says he's convince president obama is determined to keep iran from getting the bomb, no daylight between the two of them on that. president obama says there's, quote, not a lot of daylight between the united states and israel on their assessments of iran's nuclear progress. they're about a year from getting a bomb if they want it. the prime minister echoed those statements, agreeing with that. so of all of this talk of division between the two and problems behind the scenes, none of that evident today. very little daylight. ed henry is traveling with the president and is live in jerusalem. a lot of talk about the reports of chemical weapons being used in syria and the definition of chemical weapons varies between ours here and there's over there. >> it does. t
that benjamin netanyahu wants to act. i think he wants to make iran in large part our responsibility because it is, in our interests, to prevent iran from acquiring not just the weapons but the capacity to produce the weapon. so i think, for a war-time president who frankly has done more at least to extricate america from two wars it could not possibly win where the standard for victory was never, could we win but when could we leave i think it is unfair to prejudge him so early on. jon: ambassador bolton, take on some of those points. >> well, it is not prejudging him. look what he has done in his first four years. he is so desperate to avoid using military force that we have on the table right now, the latest in a long succession of diplomatic offers to iran which if the iranians simply milk a little bit more out of the europeans and the white house, i think there will be prepared to accept, that will in effect legitimatize the iranian nuclear weapons program. it will legitimatize their uranium enrichment, contrary to six years of u.n. security council sanctions, we have a position that is
smiles, so much hand holding practically between president obama and benjamin netanyahu. as we are waiting this press conference between president obama and president mahmoud abbas, what are you looking for in terms of how they relate to each other? >> reporter: a couple of key questions. does the president of the united states lay out any timetable for his effort to resume peace process? i expect the answer to that is no. he will say there's more foundation building. what does president abbas say about his willingness to come back to the table? right now he says he will only come back if israel meets certain conditions, chief among them, stop iping settlement construction in the west bank. construction is under way. and that construction has accelerated because president netanyahu was made at the united nations for recognizing, essentially, a palestinian state. that is a poke in the eye of the palestinians. it's also a poke in the eye, by the way, at the president of the united states, who has urged president netanyahu not to do that. it was very interesting yesterday. the pre
east including meeting with benjamin netanyahu. he urged iraqi leaders to overcome sectarian that threatens the stability. let's go to kristen welker. what is the president saying about the trip to the middle east? how are they characterizing this trip? >> reporter: hi, alex. officials believe he set out to do. he also reaffirmed the united states' commitment to the israeli people. the israeli people were skeptical about that prior to the trip. and then there was an unexpected diplomatic victory where president obama, through arm twisting, convinced netanyahu to call turkey and apologize for a deadly raid against a turkish ship. that will be key in moving forward with issues like syria and tries to reopen the peace process in the middle east. so i think white house officials are feeling good about the trip. the big question, if you talk to experts in the region, is what is president obama going to do now to try to restart peace talks? of course, secretary of state kerry is really taking the lead on that. to what extent will president obama engage in that and get involved? tha
and the fact that america has their back and to repair his relationship with prime minister benjamin netanyahu which has really been rocky as you know. the joke in the press corps it was operation dessert shamooz. jon: he start of off to the by going to muslim world to reset relations there. >> that is fine to make a trip like that. he never visited israel. he learn ad lesson from the first term. i infer that from the speech. you can't ask your friends to make peace with youred very serries -- adversaries if your friends don't trust you. if the friends don't know america will be there for them you can't ask for peace. that is the problem in the first term. he is starting the second term out by telling the israelis i get it. you can count on me. now you take risks for peace. whether that happens or not i think is doubtful but at least he is trying to set the stage for that. jon: much has been made of the thorny relationship he had with benjamin netanyahu up till now, the israeli prime minister. did that get smathed over as a result of the words? >> certainly the atmospherics looked a lot better
relationship with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. >>> hundreds of people gathered in san francisco today with the gel of helping undocumented immigrants gain citizenship. the faith in community forum was held in an episcopal church in the mission district. it comes as the president announced that he wants to overhaul immigration laws and put some 11 million immigrants on a path to citizenship. a bipartisan group of senators is expected to introduce a bill on the subject next month. >>> a new report says the real estate market in california is heating up. realtor.com's reporting that homes sold faster last month than in any february since 2007. plus the average time a home was on the market dropped by 51% to just 28 days. in san francisco, oakland, and san jose. and they're selling for more as well. >> today's market is the complete seller's market for the numbers on that right now in all of santa clara county on average, we have around 1100 homes on the markets, which equates to about one month of inventory. last year at this time we had around 1800 homes on the market. so it's lik
. in the meantime, president obama is expected to arrive in israel later today to meet with prime minister benjamin netanyahu on a broad range of security issues. it's the first time he's visited the country as president and only the second time he's been to the middle east since taking office. we are joined now from jerusalem. what's the mood there ahead of this visit? >> hi there, kelly. both israelis and palestinians aren't expecting much from president obama's visit. the obama administration made it clear that it's a listening tour and he'll speak to israeli and palestinian officials to get the lay of the land of where they see the future of the region but that being said, secretary of state john kerry is also here at the moment in jerusalem. he will be making these meetings and these rounds as well. he'll stay in the region after president obama leaves. he'll come back to jerusalem, speak to israeli officials about possibly starting peace talks -- starting peace talks again to find resolution when it comes to israeli/palestinian issue. it will be interesting to see what president obama says to
minister benjamin netanyahu where he will reiterate the united states is preventing iran from getting a nuclear bomb. he will discuss means of maintaining civil war. he will fly to the west bank where he will have separate talks with palestinian president mahmoud abbas. >>> the ambassador going on the record to discuss what he thinks is the reason behind the president's trip. >> i think it allows president obama to check the box that he finally made it to israel. it's significant it comes after the american election. he goes to israel on his terms while the visit will be heavy with symbolism and opportunities this is a rare trip in which the substance of the visit will be divorced from the symbolism. i don't think there will be any fence mending on this trip. president obama comes with two messages one make more concessions to the palestinians and two don't think about attacking iran's nuclear weapons program. if people could hear the conversation that president obama and prime minister netanyahu are about to have i think the 10 percent rating would be even lower. oo a oo this morning

symbolic two-day trip to the region. after being greeted by israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu and shimon perez at the airport, he held a private meeting with the recently re-elected netanyahu. the two then held a joint press conference where the three major topics werecy conflict in syria iran's pursuit of nuclear weapon and restarting the floundering israeli-palestinian peace process. today both obama and netanyahu expressed agreement with the about the need of new efforts on the two-state solution. >> so let me be clear. israel remains fully committed to peace and to the solution of two states for two people. >> an central element of lasting peace must be a strong and secure jewish state where israel's security concerns are met, along side a sovereign and independent palestinian state. >> john: which a now has been america's stated view for almost 20 years. joining us now to discuss day one of beam's israeli trip is comedian writer maysoon zayid and chief in the forward jane eisner. thankthank you fordowning us tonight. i was inspired by this. any time we get to talk about p

in the middle east, here is what he had to say when greeted by benjamin netanyahu. it's in our fundamental security interest to stand with israel. it makes us both stronger and more prosperous and makes the world a better place. >> so question is, what exactly is the president hoping to accomplish in israel. here now we republican former u.s. ambassador and dan senor the coauthor of start up nation. joining me here on set for the hour, ryan grim, huff post washington bureau chief, and tony frato, former white house deputy press secretary. welcome to one and all, if i may go to you first, ambassador, there's all this media chatter that i'm reading today that president obama the not know what he wants to do and he has no agenda. it's said that he was the first u.s. president to visit israel as a tourist. okay, do you feel that obama has no agenda items at all as the middle east is unraffivaling in >> -- unraveling? >> no, he has a real agenda, to introduce himself to the people of israel as a friend. everything that he said says that, that he has their back, that he will be in the trenches w
with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who is worried serious chemical weapons could wind up in the hands of terrorists or anti israeli extremists like hezbollah. mr. obama is stressing he is skeptical that they used chemical weapons and cautioned that the u.s. is still investigating claims that syrian president use them, the president a bushel when israeli reporter suggested that the u.s. has been sitting on its hands. >> is incorrect for you to say that we have been nothing. we have helped to mobilize the isolation of the regime internationally. we have supported and recognized the opposition. >> except the president for said that in 85 days were numbered 19 days ago. last summer he warned of potential u.s. force. >> are red line for us is, we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. that would change my calculus. >> reporter: back in washington a top republican charge the administration's policy has been addressed. >> the obama administration saw a reformer. once the revolt started, they backed u.n. diplomacy. then they bet on moscow

, what we saw here today at the press conference was benjamin netanyahu moving much closer to the president's position on this. there has been tension on this. he sees the threat of iran in a much more immediate way. he is trying to pull the united states to his view. that lecture in the oval office. i think what we saw today is a prime minister that recognizes that the president has been reelected and that it's in his interest to ease the tensions ayon i was in israel, syria, as much of a problem as the nuclear program is, the most immediate threat was syria. >> the fog of war, having covered the 12 wars, is always difficult in those initial stages. there are lots of accusations. the british have announced they are sending chemical weapons testing kits to be able to verify what may have happened. it is clear that if either side used chemical weapons, it will be the game-changer, whether it's in terms of what the outside world is prepared to do against the regime of president or in how much support it gives the rebels. we are not there yet. we all have to sit back. the chal

with action. just as prime minister benjamin netanyahu appeared to do earlier on this trip. >> i'm absolutely convinced that the president determined to prevent iran from getting nuclear weapons. i appreciate that. >> it comes at a time when the stakes could not be any higher. with iran supreme leader today threatening to wipe two israeli cities off the map. if israel attacks first. >> they should know if they make this mistake, the islamic republic will raise tel aviv and haifa to the ground. >> israel was facing new threats from palestinian extremists, with four rockets raining down on the city. where mr. obama visited as a candidate in 2008. the roberts were fired from the hamas -- the rockets were fired from the hamas-controlled gaza strip, hours before mr. obama headed to the west bank to visit with palestinian president mahmoud abbas. yet on a trip that started with white house officials trying hard to lower expectations, mr. obama appeared to raise them. by suggesting that both sides could come back to the table. >> i absolutely believe it's still possible. but i think it's very diffic
-prospects. he took the his time to pay his respects. >> the president reiterated to prime minister benjamin netanyahu the importance of peace and the vision of two states. he said washington doesn't consider it a continued settlement activity to be constructive. he said visiting this week is to listen and reinforce support. he also continues to keep a tough stance on iran. he repeated the u.s. position saying, quote: all options are on the table stopping iran from requiring nuclear weapons. he does, however, want to address the issue diplomatically. >> iran must know this time is not unlimited. i have made the position of the united states of america clear. iran must not get a nuclear weapon. this is not a danger that can be contained.
